November 14 2014Aberdeen’s former Esslemont and Macintosh department store is back on the cards following submission of fresh proposals for a 98 bedroom hotel by local developer Castlecall.
Drawn up by Halliday Fraser Munro the scheme will see a concrete barnacle clamped to the building’s Broad Street frontage removed to be replaced by a full height fritted glass sheath.
An existing link bridge connecting two adjoining buildings will also be replaced with a triple deck glazed connection with a street level restaurant facing Union Street.
The scheme neighbours the planned Marischal Square development, also by Halliday Fraser Munro.
